Start with Sun Cluster 3.2


The next powerful version of Sun Cluster is available. Sun Cluster 3.2 is part of the Solaris Cluster product suite which includes Sun Cluster, Sun Cluster Geographic Edition, developer tools and support for commercial and open-source applications through agents. Some resources I like to mention:

For the installation of Sun Cluster 3.2 you should know:
--> Solaris 10 11/06 (Update3) is required. No earlier release of Solaris 10 is supported.
--> Addtional the following patches are highly recommended. (The table lists minimum revision of the patches)

SPARC:
118833-36 SunOS 5.10: kernel patch
124918-02 SunOS 5.10: devfsadm, devlinks, drvconfig patch
124916-01 SunOS 5.10: sd, ssd drivers patch
121010-04 SunOS 5.10: rpc.metad patch
120986-10 SunOS 5.10: mkfs and newfs patch
X86:
118855-36 SunOS 5.10_x86: kernel patch
124920-02 SunOS 5.10_x86: Solaris boot filelist.ramdisk patch
124919-02 SunOS 5.10_x86: devfsadm patch support
124917-02 SunOS 5.10_x86: sd driver patch
121011-04 SunOS 5.10_x86: rpc.metad patch
120987-10 SunOS 5.10_x86: mkfs, newfs, other ufs utils patch

Note: Sun Cluster 3.2 can also run on Solaris 9 8/05 (Update8). Certainly all Solaris 10 specific features are not available in Solaris 9.

Comments:

Is it acceptable to patch a system up to S10U3 levels or must the system be installed with the S10U3 bits?

Solaris 10 Update3 is a "must have". Therefore patch up the system is NOT enough, but you can run a normal upgrade to Solaris 10 Update3.

I'm still mostly blogging around Solaris Cluster and support. Independently if for Sun Microsystems or Oracle. :-)
